She’s the queen of comedy with the box office takings and rave reviews to prove it, and now Melissa McCarthy is closer to having another hit behind her with The Boss.
The film follows McCarthy as Michelle Darnell – America’s richest woman and a titan of industry who is sent to prison after being caught for insider trading. When she finally emerges, Michelle is ready to rebrand herself as America’s sweetheart, though former enemies are unwilling to let go of old grudges.
Written by Ben Falcone and Steve Mallory, and directed by Falcone, The Boss also stars Kristen Bell and Peter Dinklage. The Boss will be released in the US on April 8, 2016 and in the UK on June 10, 2016.
